July 17

Moscow was included in the shortlist of the World Design Capital - 2024 international competition. The World Design Organization announced this. San Diego and Tijuana, which are considered a single bi-national urban agglomeration, also made it to the final. The winner will be announced in October.

"Reaching the final is an indicator of the quality work of the entire team of leading specialists of the Moscow design industry and the Moscow Government. The metropolis tries to use design as effectively as possible from the point of view of the social, cultural and economic life of the city. Therefore, another step was taken towards the presentation of Moscow as an international showcase of unique ideas and projects, attractive for creative entrepreneurs and investors," Natalia Sergunina, Deputy Moscow Mayor, said.

The Moscow plans for 2024 include strengthening the creative economy, implementing new technological solutions for sustainable urban development, creating a successful infrastructure for culture and business, in which design will promote people-oriented innovations.

The World Design Capital contest was established to raise the international audience awareness about urban initiatives, new solutions, strengths and values of design, as well as innovative approaches used in everyday life. It attracts the attention of cities interested in demonstrating best practices in the field of urban policy and innovation. It also provides an opportunity to find local, national and international partners.

Every two years, the World Design Organization announces a city that successfully works in the field of design for the purpose of urban planning, innovation and business development. Turin, Italy, was recognized as the first World Design Capital in 2008. This title was also awarded to Lille, Mexico City, Taipei, Cape Town and Helsinki. Valencia will receive this status in 2022.

Moscow is taking part in the contest supported by the City Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development and the Agency of Creative Industries subordinate to it.
